Trailer size

I am buying a 2013 188 ob with a 150hp yamaha. My dealer is telling me that I need a tandem axle trailer rated for 4000lbs. The trailer they sell is a venture aluminum trailer rated at 4200lbs with dual axles and brakes on both axles. The next model down is rated for 3600lbs. I don't mind overkill with trailers but this seems to me to be a bit much based on the wet weight advertised by Hurricane of 3300lbs which I assume is with a full tank of gas. I am also concerned about setting the boat up on the trailer and having it to far back to give me a decent tongue weight. Any thoughts?
